Central Texas Poison Center

Located at Scott & White in Temple, TX, the Central Texas Poison Center (CTPC) is a 24-hour poison emergency treatment and information resource for health care professionals and the public in Central Texas. The CTPC is supported by an intrastate long distance telephone tax and designated by the Texas legislature to provide poison information and prevention services to health care professionals and the public within Public Health Region 7.

The CTPC is part of the Texas Poison Center Network. This network consists of six regional poison centers located throughout the state, including Austin and Waco, east to College Station and west to San Saba.

Education materials are available to those within our service area by calling 800-222-1222. Emergency and consultative services to both the public and health care providers are available by calling 800-222-1222 or 9-1-1. This number accesses all Poison Centers within the State of Texas, when calling from within Texas, and will only access CTPC when calling within Public Health Region 7. For those who are not within our service area and have a non-poison related question, we can be reached through our administrative line at 254-724-7405. Please keep in mind our administrative line is not answered on a regular basis. Please leave a message and allow up to two business days for a return call.
